    TCogNovo is a multi-national doctoral training programme offering a research network for cognitive innovation, both as a new field of artistic and scientific investigation, and as a strategy for research and innovation. We summarize the programme’s goals, themes, members, partners, projects, and activities in this paper. CogNovo aims to develop a ground-breaking training programme in cognitive research for technological, artistic, and social innovation. Our experience from activities that we have already completed provides us with some confidence towards meeting these aims. We look forward to further CogNovo training workshops in social creativity (January 2016) and the brain basis for Cognitive Innovation (April 2016). We expect that these sessions – in addition to the Cognitive Innovation Summer School (July 2016) – not only will develop among CogNovo fellows the advanced expertise and transferable skills that will prepare them for successful careers in academia and industry, but will also strengthen the worldwide network of leading research labs and innovative industries within which CogNovo is embedded.
